The New York Knicks snapped their longest losing streak of the season at four games by beating the Philadelphia 76ers 99-93 on Sunday night. All-Star Jrue Holiday had 30 points, five rebounds and five assists for the 76ers, who have lost five straight games and eight straight on the road. Evan Turner had 21 points and Thaddeus Young added 11 points and 10 rebounds after missing six games with a strained left hamstring.

The 76ers have lost 17 of their last 20 road games and haven’t won away from home since beating the Lakers on New Year’s Day. The eight-game skid is their longest since also dropping eight in a row from Nov. 10 to Dec. 3, 2010.
